T​hat outlet should be on a GFCI controlled plug. OR it may just have a bad connection on the rear of the outlet. Most of these are the cheaper made one piece Check that first with a small digital multimeter like you can find at most hardware stores. About $20 or so and easy to use and very helpful to have in your tool kit. If you need help with the testing or we need to dig deeper into this please get back to me as all follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.
